Martin and Facundo Lombard were born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. They started dancing at the age of 7, inspired by Michael Jackson, and at the age of 13 succeeded enough to make their debut on Argentina’s most popular TV show "Rhythm Of The Night".

Lombard twins performed together with the "The Godfather of Soul" James Brown and "The King of Latin Music" Tito Puente, appeared on covers of several magazines, including The Vogue, in ad campaigns for Versus/ Versace photographed by Steven Meisel. 

Their self sustained full length show "Dreamers... If you Don't have a dream, you don't have a life" was created to the end by the twins and became first in a row of successful dance projects, followed by "Lombard Play Piazzolla" with its world premiere at New York City Center.  

Their career in cinema is as successful: "Infancia 34", "Free Expression", "Sublevados", "Chant Et Fugue" and "Escualo" have been screened in prestigious film festivals worldwide. Lombard twins tend not only to star in their movies, but also write, produce and direct themselves. 

Martin and Facundo Lombard gained international recognition for playing the Santiago Twins in the movies "Step Up 3D" and "Step Up All In". They also appeared the promotional trailer of "Men In Black 3" with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. 

The Lombard Twins develops "Free Expression" - A distinctive dance form that focuses on individual emotion and expression. It transcends traditions and attitudes of many established dance techniques of today.
